Public transport to Peillon is tricky, so you're best relying on a car. Several trains a day link Nice with the dilapidated train station Peillon-Saint-Thècle (journey time approx. 25 min.; one-way ticket 2.80€), but it's still a 3km (10-mile) journey into the old village of Peillon so some backpackers end up hitchhiking. For rail information and schedules, call tel. 36-35, or visit www.voyages-sncf.com.

Few other towns in Provence are as easy to reach by car and as inconvenient to reach by public transportation. Peillon is an easy 25-minute drive (depending on traffic) northeast from Nice; take D2204 to D21.
